Dairy And Hives, But Not Allergic?

23 August 2006 - 11:21 AM

My Celiac son will usually get facial hives after dairy consumption. What is a little baffling, though, is that he does not have a positive reaction to the standard skin allergy test (we just had him tested).

Another doctor ordered a blood test for the level of IgG and IgE for an array of foods, and he was very high on dairy. My allergist doesn't know how to interpret the results of this test (IgG and IgE), and insists the skin test is the gold standard.

All I know is he gets the hives after eating dairy, and his body is making antibodies to dairy, so we're just avoiding milk.

I'm interested if any others have had this happen, or could at least shed some light into what is going on.

Thanks, Patrick
